Beastfolk

Beastfolk is the general term used for the people that hail from Calari. They are called Beastfolk due to each one having physical characteristics of an animal. Each type of race is said to belong to a specific clan; however, each particular person generally belongs to a tribe composed of family members and 4-12 other families.

Ecology & Society: For the most part, Beastfolk are a simple people, a people of wood and stone. Their desires are for the necessities of life and the companionship of others. Beastfolk typically do not enjoy living alone, and generally feel safer when with a group. Superficially, Beastfolk social structure is similar to that of men, though lacking a caste system or a feudal nobility. Instead, the basic social unit is the family and a Beastfolk is loyal first to their family and then to their clan. A typical family has three to five children. Twins and triplets are not uncommon. Most marriages take place within a clan, but there's no real taboo against marriage between clans. The clans generally avoid it, however.
